Classes are private and conducted in the comfort of your own home or you can get a group of expecting friends together for a class! The ideal time for expecting parents to take a class is between 28-36 weeks. However, you are welcome at any point in your pregnancy.

The classes come with an extensive booklet for you to keep and reference once the baby has arrived. I am also available as a resource after the baby is born. All clients are able to reach out at any time, day or night, after the baby is born with any questions, concerns, or breastfeeding issues.

Parents, caregivers, family members with children of any age are welcome to take infant and/or child CPR and choking training.

Public group classes coming soon. But if you would like to take the class with other expecting friends, private group classes are an option!
